600 Years in the Making

By Linda Tancs

Golf is a 600-year-old sport.  Hard to believe that it’s taken that long to get a golf festival going where it all began.  The St Andrews Golf Festival is the first-ever celebration of golf at its birthplace in St Andrews, Scotland.  Today through 1 April, the free calendar of events includes the Seve exhibition at The Scores Hotel, an exclusive talk by Mungo Park (grandson of the first winner of the Open Championship in 1860), the Bobby Jones exhibition and golf correspondent Lewine Mair’s talk on the history of women’s golf.
